“Good City Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

We had a nice stay in this very convenient hotel. The room was quiet, very spacious and well equipped, the location is also very good, a lot of nice breakfast places and bars are in walking distance. It was also very very reasonably priced.

This great hotel sits a two minute walk from Frankfurter Tor underground station. It has everything a +$200 hotel has at a much lower price. There was really nothing we could fault it at. It was quiet, clean, well appointed and the room got cleaned every day with good German obsession. The staff was friendly and organized. We had a combo reservation for a few days business and pleasure, different billing processes, and it all worked well. We'll certainly stay here again in the future.

We were 3 girls visiting zarenhof hotel for a christmas - new year vacation. All we can say that it was simply perfect, the staff is very kind and helping with everything you ask for. The location of the hotel is great as well, close to the hotel there is a tram station "frankforter tor", just 5 minutes walking or less. Many coffes and retaurants, located in freidrichshain - the heart of berlin, many clubs, pubs for those who looking for parties and nightlife. The room was very clean and specious. Will come back again!! big thanks to the amazing staff.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

The hotel is in a very good location, on a quiet street, just a few minutes’ walk from Frankfurter Tor subway station.
There are plenty of cafés, restaurant and shops in the vicinity. There is a small supermarket (Kauf Markt) on Karl-Marx Allee, on the way to Weiberweise station, next to the Vietnam Airlines office, about 5 minutes’ walk away. There is a much bigger supermarket (Kaiser’s) at the corner of Warschauer Strasse and Guberner Strasse, on the way to Warschauer station, about 10 minutes’ walk away.
The hotel is decorated in traditional style, with red carpets, classical furniture, and old photos of Russian tsars’ families on the walls.
Rooms are at the back of the hotel and are thus very quiet.
We stayed in a standard double room on ground level. The room looked out onto a small internal courtyard. Bedding was comfortable but pillows were a bit too big and hard for us (a bit like floor cushions). Bath room was clean.
The room had a flatscreen TV and phone. As minibar, there were only 2 bottles of water and two bottles of wine on a table. No fridge or any tea/coffee making facilities. Free wifi was available.
Reception staff was very helpful. They gave us maps, showed us where everything was, and printed our flight boarding passes for us.The service staff tidied and cleaned our room very well everyday.
With so many good cafes and restaurants around, we did not take breakfast in the hotel so cannot give any comment on the quality of food.
Overall, we enjoyed our 5-night stay there. It would have been superb if there were a fridge and/or tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

This hotel pretty much gives you all you need from a decent small hotel in this beautiful area - good beds, clean room etc. Better pillows would be a good idea though.
However, the service at the reception needs improvement! Having made a reservation for 2 rooms - with prepayment of the full amount - 3 months before the stay, we arrived in the evening to the message that only one room had been reserved. The woman in the reception could not understand the reservation she had received, and it took us half an hour to get a room. Next day I got a conformation that the reservation and payment was OK. But when we left we ran into the same woman again, who still said that I had not paid the room. This time it took 15 minutes to get out of the hotel - and we received no excuse for the waste of our time.

Travelled to attend a congress in Berlin. Stayed for 3 nights. Rooms are very spacious, clean with free internet and TV. Breakfasts were rich with wide variety of hot and cold stuff. Personell at the reception desk was very friendly. You can rent a bike here for 10 euros a day which is normal price in Berlin and its worth. Overall very nice experience for the price. Location is in a proximity of Alexanderplatz (25 min walking) and close to subway for those who dont want to walk or go by bike which I would advise.
